The Gazprom headquarters on Tuesday saw Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Company's Management Committee and Li Hui, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the People's Republic of China to the Russian Federation, meet to discuss the issues of strategic cooperation in the gas sector as well as arranging the Russian natural gas supply to China via the eastern route.
Gazprom said that it had made energetic efforts to build the required gas production, transmission and processing capacities in Eastern Russia, which, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), will be the area where natural gas for transport to China will predominantly be sourced, following the completion of a US$ 400 billion gas supply deal between Russia and China.
In particular, the preparations for the construction of the Power of Siberia gas pipeline were highlighted, Gazprom said.
